Geng noted that Huawei has been operating in Britain for many years, investing billions of pounds, supporting tens of thousands of jobs, setting up joint research centers and actively fulfilling social responsibility.

He urged the United States to stop generalizing the concept of national security, smearing and blaming China and suppressing Chinese companies unreasonably.

"What is the real intention of the United States to slander China and suppress Chinese enterprises? I believe any country that upholds an objective and fair position can clearly see," Geng said.
